|Demystifying the audit
Are a company’s financial statements accurate? Do they conform to accounting standards? The audit, along with the resulting audit opinion, helps readers and users of financial statements answer those questions. But the audit is not a “gold seal” guaranteeing that the financial statements are free from all errors. This Insights for the Investment Community explains what the auditor does, what the auditor does not do, and how to better understand the audit opinion.
